Socal - San Diego County - Eastlake NickNames: #HStreet eastlake hills
Off the interstate 5, take the 'H Street' exit and head east. Follow H Street approximately 2-3 miles and make a right on 'Paseo Del Rey.' Make a left at the first stop sign--putting you onto a residencial street--and follow approximately 1 mile. After going through one stop sign, you will come to a small playground/park on your right. On your left will be a large electrical tower and a metal dirt road gate. You can park along the street there, or turn into one of the residencial streets and hide your car from traffic. Unload there and go through the gate.
The trail is moderately technical with quick switchbacks followed by immediate steep climbs. Some spots are close to impossible to turn and keep going uphill with enough momentum. The trail switchbacks so much that getting a lot of speed can be dangerous unless you are an expert rider. Be careful and respect the homeowners above you and the riders around you.
